I can’t and won’t imagine what it is like to be an actress in the crazy world of film & television.  Without having first hand knowledge, I know it takes courage and patience to put yourself out there for the world to judge you on a single note, performance or appearance. For these ladies to take these roles and make them their own to the point that they are nationally acknowledged and globally recognized!!! all I can say is KUDOS!!!
